Good 'find' dbbrian. Looks to make someone a nice Venturer model, right down to the original seat and original backrest! Only other change I see at this point is the mirror assemblies have been changed to rectangle assemblies from the original round mirrors.

This is a great deal for someone.

I'm still trying to imagine how an old spark plug helps with missing choke bearings.

Good luck with the sale, TexinMaine!

Thanks! I pull out the choke and place the spark plug between the choke handle and carb body. It snaps shut and holds the spark plug in place and open enough to activate the choke.

1/8" ball bearings will fit and work.(DAMHIKIJK) You can buy them at your local Ace hardware, or at least I can.

Thanks, I have one down the road. Now are there also small springs under the bearings?
